THere is no doubt that this is another fine album full of wonderful vocals. As with Spirit of the century the blind boys have been teamed up with another great set of backing musicians, although I must admit i do miss Danny Thompsons excellent bass playing which was an outstanding feature of the previous album.
There is a good range of songs on this album which show up the beauty of the singing and playing.
Even if like me you would never normall consider a gospel album this is well worth buying and if you have never heard spirit of the century you MUST get that album tha treally is essential listening
Don't expect any fancy vocals or over-virtuous performances, this is about soul and a simple message, which the blind boys deliver excellently.

A solid album of songs to relax and unwind to from a group of truly gifted vocalists. Track 11 is a particular favourite.Published on 23 Sept. 2012 by David Tyler
